Every Mom Deserves Something New
A few ideas to get your mind thinking of some creative,
theme-related showers for the mom-to-be.
you’re throwing your first baby shower or your
hundredth, you know that it’s a special way to
celebrate an up-and-coming life!
But, you want to make this one unique and memorable from
all the others--you’re tired of the mundane.
Try centering the celebration on a theme—it not only
makes the shower easier to organize, but makes the day
one-of-a-kind for this mom-to-be!
Here are a few party themes to get your mind spinning:
Mom Pampering Party—take mom-to-be and all the guests
to a day spa. If for some reason, your wallet seems to have mysteriously emptied,
save some cash and create your own spa party at home!
light snacks and non-alcoholic drinks while guests
enjoy one another and the calming environment. Get
some spa products at www.jaquabeauty.com!

Party—on the invitations, encourage
guests to bring a layette for the new baby (or maybe
even a fun outfit for mom). Before the party starts,
hang a clothes line in the house and as guests arrive,
have them hang up their gifts. When mom-to-be comes,
she’ll be delighted to see the goodies waiting
for Mom Party—this is wonderful for
moms who have other children. Ask guests to bring a
frozen dish (along with the recipe card)—to give
to the expectant mom. What a lifesaver if she doesn’t
have energy to cook for the family!
If you only know how to make is peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches … and don’t even own a cook book,
visit recipe websites like www.cooks.com or www.recipesource.com.
Tea Party—hire someone to do a professional
tea party or organize it yourself. All you need is plenty
of flowers, tea (try several kinds), and dainty china cups
and plates. The perfect menu includes scones, croissants,
deli meats, fruit slices, and of course, cake.
